Author Happy Hour with Thad Cummings

Thad lives in Grand Rapids, MI where he works as a consultant and writes. After spending nearly a decade running sustainable and social businesses, he has shifted focus towards a bigger picture. The conversation is no longer about individual projects or business ideas; rather, in an ever polarizing society, it is about how we look at the root causes of systemic issues instead of tirelessly trying to address the symptoms. Join the conversation, contribute dialogue, and be a part of the change.

Radical Compassion

Social media has become a warzone for politics, millions are suffering from anxiety and depression and millions more lack basic necessities for quality of life. The world often feels more against us than with us and compassion has become the furthest thing from the conversation. This robs us, our relationships, and our community from engaging a life of the love, grace and dignity we all deserve. If we are going to pick a battle to fight, let’s fight a culture of hostility with a hands-on approach toward compassion. Join the conversation, challenge the norm and set precedence to say we can all do better, collectively.

The event is finished.
